Insiders have spilled on life inside the notorious fetish club Daniel Johns was spotted near at the weekend, as the dungeon’s ‘mistress’ denied lurid claims the Silverchair frontman had attended the club.
‘Mistress Scarlett’, who runs The Kastle in Sydney’s Chippendale, rejected claims the Silverchair frontman had ever been to the fetish parlour, calling it ‘false information’ in a tweet on Sunday.
‘Daniel Johns was not on the premises nor has been previously,’ Ms Scarlett said, before adding that the club ‘never revealed’ the identity of their clients for privacy reasons.
The denial came as radio host Kyle Sandilands spoke about his knowledge of the establishment’s themed fetish rooms – which includes a dungeon, a ‘hospital ward’ and a girl’s bedroom.

Kyle, who has not personally visited The Kastle, explained: ‘It’s got three different rooms inside this place. A dungeon – like some sort of medieval-style dungeon thing.
‘(There’s) a hospital room for medical play, and a room that looks like a girl’s bedroom… that’s weird.
He went on to describe each room in detail.
‘The dungeon is pretty straight forward with everything – sex slings, crosses tied to the wall – and they’ve even got funnels you can shove in your mouth and let someone pee in it,’ he said.
‘Doesn’t that sound like a fun party?’ he jokingly added.

Describing the hospital room as ‘more hardcore’, Kyle explained: ‘(You’ll enjoy it) if you’re into needles being stuck into you and getting enemas and sticking pipes in you, flushing you out, sticking hooks in you and all that weird stuff.’
‘Hooks? Why would you be getting hooks?’ co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson interjected.
‘So that you can be suspended from the ceiling,’ Kyle nonchalantly responded, before going on to describe what goes on inside the final room.
‘And the girl’s bedroom, where you dress up as a little girl and get treated like a worthless piece of s**t with spanking, sitting in the naughty corner and all that sort of stuff,’ Kyle said.
‘It’s got three different rooms inside this place’: During a segment on Monday’s KIIS FM breakfast show, shock-jock Kyle Sandilands spoke about his knowledge of the 25-year-old establishment’s themed fetish sex rooms
‘You dress up as a little girl and get treated like a worthless piece of s**t’: Kyle also described a room themed as a girl’s bedroom in detail
There are plenty of other experiences on offer inside The Kastle, including being locked in cage while being subjected to insults.
‘You can spend the whole day wearing a gimp mask being locked up in a giant birdcage in reception, where all the working hookers walk past and humiliate you with insults,’ Kyle revealed.
But patrons will need to have deep pockets to experience all that The Kastle has to offer, with Kyle claiming that the average hour-long session costs between $400 and $500, while ‘the hardcore stuff’ can set you back $600 per hour.
The club advertises short sessions for $250 on its website.

Johns has not spoken publicly since it was alleged that he was at the club on Sunday.
A club spokeswoman stood by Mistress Scarlett’s Twitter denial when contacted by Daily Mail Australia. ‘She’s said what she needs to say’.
Another mistress said: ‘Utterly & entirely false. I work at The Kastle and as much as I wish Daniel Johns were a client, he is not.’

Earlier in their segment, Kyle and Jackie O claimed the paparazzi were tipped off about Daniel’s whereabouts over the weekend.
According to the radio duo, a woman who works at The Kastle contacted the media after allegedly ‘becoming fed up with the rockstar’s behaviour’.
